NYC Fashion Week - Spring 2010 (Part 2)

The girl-on-the-street vibe that I was bitching about earlier, is still going strong on the runway, but I'm kinda sorta getting used to it & there have been a few snazzy exceptions. Guess I'll just have to wait for Paris & Milan (London, hopefully too... PLEEEEASE, London) for some oomph. Here's the best of what has on display from the last few days of the Spring 2010 collections...

Cynthia Steffe:

Vena Cava:

Jason Wu:

Prabal Gurung:


Luca Luca:

Erin Wasson + RVCA:

Organic by John Patrick:

Gary Graham:

Juan Carlos Obando:

Yigal Azrouel:

Preen by Justin Thornton & Thea Bregazzi is far & away the best of what's been offered so far. The palette is so right on for the times, fresh & clean with little shocks of color here & there, and I adore the intricate strap detailing, the metallic leathers, all the sculptural details, and their restrained but generous use of lace & draping.

And, in yet another lesson reminding us to Never Judge A Book By It's Cover...

Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra, the burly lumberjackish partners behind Costello Tagliapietra, dazzle with sophisticated elegance...
